Heat scores great Booklist review

November 21, 2012

Bill Streever's second book, Heat: Adventures in the World's Fiery Places (Little, Brown, Jan 2013), scored a great pre-pub review:

"With engaging storytelling skill and deep scientific knowledge, Streever offers a fascinating exploration of one of the basic necessities of everyday life. A detailed notes section is as fascinating as the text."

The full review will be published in the Dec. 1 issue of Booklist.
